A female sports reporter for 105.7 The Fan has filed an $800,000 defamation suit against WNST station owner Nestor Aparicio and two of his hosts, saying they diminished her reputation by calling her "trashy" and incompetent on-air and online.
Jennifer Royle, who has been covering the Orioles and the Ravens for WJZ-FM and Mid-Atlantic Sports Network for about a year, filed the suit March 10 in Baltimore Circuit Court.
The suit alleges that during her time at MASN, Aparicio, Glenn Clark and Drew Forrester made repeated statements about Royle on WNST 1570AM, on blogs and on Twitter. According to the suit, the statements included saying Royle was incompetent, involved in sexual relationships with multiple professional athletes and resembled a stripper.
The men also allegedly called her "trashy."
Aparicio's attorney, Stephen L. Miles, called the allegations "baseless" Wednesday.
"I beg them to show me something they supposedly did," Miles said. "Ask them to show you something that these guys ever blogged negatively about this young woman. I have yet to be provided with anything."
